Grace’s IG account shows photos of her dad, who sadly died unexpectedly in February 2020. She said he was the biggest supporter of her music career. While watching the show as a child, she imagined auditioning with him by her side. She wore his lion necklace to her audition. Her late father was a Leo, and Grace is also a Leo. The necklace made her feel like he was there with her. “I feel like he’s always chirping over my shoulder like, ‘Go get ‘em!’” she told uber-rich host Ryan Seacrest. She said his absence has taught her to live every moment as if it’s her last. See Grace preparing for Disney Night below:
